Aruna 5K

I will be running the Aruna 5k on April 16th. I have wanted to run a 5k ever since hearing my friend Stephanie talk about it.

Stephanie has been running since she was born ran several 5k's and really inspired me to try it. It has been a goal in the back of my head for a while. Early this year Corrie told me about the Aruna 5k and really motivated me to put my goal into action.

Corrie and I started training together once a week. Since then, Carl decided to run the Aruna 5k and we have been running together several times a week. The race is actually the weekend of our 15th wedding anniversary.

Carl is a great coach and has really encouraged my to stick with it and really motivated me to get out of my comfort zone and RUN. The Aruna 5k race is a run for freedom.

We are raising money for young girls from India who are victims of human trafficking. To sponsor me in my first 5k, just click the picture below. You can donate ANY amount and I would be so thankful!
